31. I have been watching many WWII films/docs lately
Edited on Mon Apr-05-10 01:27 PM by Duer 157099
Band of Brothers, the recent WWII in HD (History channel?), The Pacific, etc.

And one thing that I always notice is that when wounded are being removed, the engagement stops.

Now, I don't know if these are sanitized versions that managed to survive the past half century (although much is also based on personal testimony of the soldiers who fought), but as for the video footage, you just don't see firing when the medics arrive.

Is it because that van didn't have a big red cross on it? Is that the whole difference?

Maybe it is.

Gut wrenching.
